A Delicate Matter
The long, rich history of Buenos Aires—it was founded in the 16th century—speaks through the lovely faded, layered reds and pinks of its houses.
This isn't bubblegum, baby-girl pink but rather a subtle blush, like the gorgeous old walls of the Palermo Viejo district (once a hangout for intellectuals and revolutionaries such as Jorge Luis Borges and Che Guevara, now a renewed, stylish quarter with restaurants galore). The pleated silk georgette dress (Tommy Hilfiger, $848) has a vintage quality: flattering cap sleeves, an easy-fitting shape (good for curvy figures), pretty details like satin ball buttons. Try it for a daytime wedding or outdoor party. Rose metallic sandals (Claudia Ciuti) bring out the dress's pinkish undertone. Earrings, Michaelisa in Technibond. Necklace, Kimberly McDonald.
